Editor’s Notes: After commemorating David Bowie with a glammed-up sneaker collection, Vans now unveils new iterations of its classic Sk8-Hi and Era silhouettes in a premium finish. Both pairs maintain a signature aesthetic but elevated with the brand's distinctive checkerboard pattern across the uppers in alternating colors, composed of hairy suede.
Rendered in red for the Sk8-Hi and navy for the Era LX, you can cop both pairs at Vans retailers now.
